Microsoft Word/Pagination


I work in a training department, and we are trying to create a new format for our facilitator guides. We would like the even page (left) for the facilitator notes and the odd page (right) the student manual page. We would also like the facing pages to have the same page number, like this:

1 - 1
2 - 2
3 - 3

Is there a way to do this without putting in section breaks after each odd page? These docs are quite large and we have a number of people contributing to them, so the easier the better. We have Word 2010. Thanks!

It would be possible but it would need some manipulation of the field codes - effectively you would have a different odd and even, and put the necessary maths to get the page number to reflect what you wanted - see for a discussion on this which should give you the methodology.
